18 Sep grilled pear + whipped blue cheese
This week, we’ve grilled pears and whipped some blue cheese to assemble a sweet and savoury open sandwich.
Grilled Pears with Whipped Blue Cheese
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
2 slices of sourdough (or your favourite bread for toast)
1 tablespoon of yogurt
2 tablespoons of crumbled blue cheese
Rocket, to serve
- Heat a little olive oil on a griddle or frying pan over a medium heat. Slice the pear, about 1cm thick. Sprinkle with salt and plenty of pepper before frying for 5 minutes on either side. Meanwhile, toast your bread.
- Make your whipped blue cheese by adding the yogurt and blue cheese into your food processor. Whip until really smooth. You can do this by hand too using a fork but the food processor makes for a super smooth whipped cheese.
- Serve the grilled pears with the toast, the whipped blue cheese and some crunchy rocket on the side.
